I think it's a myth. According to my notes, here's who worked on the film:

"DIRECTOR: Gil Altschul; CAMERA: Bruce Colling; WRITERS: Harriette Smith, Hartley Pfeil; EDITOR: George Wilbern; NARRATOR: Ken Nordine; AUTHORITY: Reuben Hill, Ph.D., Research Professor in Family Life, University of North Carolina; ALAN WOODRUFF: John Lin"

Ken Nordine is a celebrity of sorts - he did a lot of spoken word jazz and he also did some popular commercial voiceover work in the late 1980s (Levis jeans, etc.).

Ed Wood, Jr. may have been in Chicago around the time that "Dating Do's and Don'ts" was made, so maybe he worked at Coronet? The book "Nightmare of Ecstasy" seems to be the source of this rumor. Anybody have it handy?
